Lope is Huntsman to Lord Greiss of House Ulanti. He is lethal - a deadeye shot, as well as a patient and loyal servant. It is rumoured that he was once an off-world bounty hunter of some renown. His scarred and patched body reinforces that rumour, but none know for certain.
Lope is one one of the Confrontation Bounty Hunter models with the simple addition of a pair of arms from the new plastic Skitarii kit. The pose shamelessly echoes Evo's (Port Imperiale) big game hunter using the same model (with Victoria Miniatures arms):
|Evo's interpretation of the same model.|
I've retained the bright blue/white/yellow combination, but gave Lope more battered armour to reflect his more 'hands dirty' role. He's no fawning courtier, but a man of deliberate action! Even though I probably shouldn't have painted his hair bleached blonde (it's too close to the yellow shirt), I couldn't resist. I think it gives him a sort of Javier Bardem Bond villan look!
Here's House Ulanti to date. I think I need to paint up some standard retainers and guards to keep an eye on all the more important persons.
